System and Method for Forming Cohesive Smart Fluids
NJIT Case No. 17-045
Inventors: Pushpendra Singh
Intellectual Property & Development status: Patent Protection is pending.
NJIT is currently seeking commercial partners for the further development and commercialization of this opportunity.
Technology Brief: Researchers at New Jersey Institute of Technology in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering invented a system and a method for forming cohesive smart fluids aimed to manufacture materials with highly ordered two- and three-dimensional hierarchical mesoscale patterns.
The main shortcoming of existing Electrorheological (ER) fluids is that the electric field causes their particles to fragment into chains and columns and that will inhibit a three-dimensionally connected structure formation. The invention overcomes the shortcomings that occurs when only one type of particle is present as the electric field causes the particles to fragment into chains and columns so a three-dimensionally connected structure can be formed.
